I’m Mike Wallace and I am running for Mayor of our great city of Burlington.
I moved to Burlington in 1987 with my wife Caroline after graduating from the University of Guelph. We have raised two wonderful daughters here and are now proud grandparents to a beautiful little girl.
Early in my career, I gained valuable business experience with Imperial Oil. Since then, I have worked as a realtor in Burlington and as a fundraiser for Easter Seals Ontario.
For 12 years, I served as Burlington Councillor for the south east area and was also honoured to be elected as Burlington’s Member of Parliament for over 9 years.
My family – raised in beautiful Burlington
I have worked very hard, both as an elected official and a volunteer, at making Burlington a better place for everyone. These efforts have been frequently recognized: I was Burlington Tourism Builder of the Year, a Queens’s Jubilee medal recipient and an Honourary member of the Burl-Oak Naval Veteran’s Association.
As your elected representative, I have a long track record of achieving significant results that have helped our city grow. You can find these listed here.
I love this city. I want to help make Burlington vibrant, alive and livable. I want there to be opportunities for everyone. We have a lot of work to do, but together we can make this city better. A lot better.
As a strong advocate for more engagement from everyone in this city, I look forward to your input and feedback in my bid to become Mayor!
Burlington can be a better place to live, a better place to work and a better place to play.
